Absolutely loved the diversity of weekend activities present at University of Auckland. Whether on-campus (fitness classes, clubs, expos, sooooo many yummy food trucks, Study Abroad program excursions/meetups) or off-campus (island visits, downtown Auckland, cute coffee shops for studying and hanging out on every corner practically, bars/clubs, weekend/day trips just a few hours away, cheap flights to the South Island, etc.), I found myself without very many free days. Of course, we have to squeeze in study time somewhere, but even then there were so many places I could study (i.e. library, coffee shops, my home, with friends, local library, etc.). Overall, great travel experience, and the Uni makes it very easy to go with or without them--your preference!
